For some reason I have a RED X next to my project (using eclipse IDE)
can anyone advise where can get the reason for this error?

all jars and dependent projects are correct (in the project path)

Thank you.

I'm not sure how we could possibly know.

Look in the errors view.

Actually it's the "Problems" view that shows Java and project errors -- the Errors view logs runtime errors from the workbench itself.
